Ceramic electrolytes are proposed as key components in resolving challenges extant indeveloping next generation, high energy density Li batteries by replacing liquid electrolytes to improve safety and performance. Among numerous candidates, c-LLZO offers multipledesirable properties: high ionic conductivities (0.1–1 mS cm− 1), Li stability, a wideelectrochemical operating window (∼ 6 V) and pH stability (7–11.5). However, incorporationinto prototype cells has yet to be demonstrated as c-LLZO membranes at thicknesses< 50
